BAM and Triple Canopy: On Resentment

Series Site

Resentment defines politics today. We’ve received innumerable lessons in the sense of dispossession that characterizes the fabled white working class, courtesy of liberal and right-wing media alike. But can resentment be reclaimed? Who else has a right to be resentful? Can—and must—resentment be useful? This expansive program, a collaboration between BAM and Triple Canopy magazine, engages these questions by looking at how resentment has been expressed in the medium of film, and features formally daring, thematically ambitious works that wrestle with identity and representation, violence and ownership, revolutions and dead ends.
